You guys. Today we’re jumping aboard the trendy train!
That’s right. We’re breaking out the Spiralizer to make the BEST zucchini casserole ever.
But first, lets talk spiralizers. Do you have one? If not, do you want one?
Because, well, YOU SHOULD. I just got one and have used it pretty much E’ry. Single. Day. of my life. I mean, eating vegetables that are pretend pasta is WAY more fun than eating vegetables in their natural vegetable form, ya feel me?
Some current favorites are: Chicken zoodle soup, creamy healthy carbonara with sweet potato noodles and vegan mac and cheese with butternut squash noodles.
Basically, Spiralize ALL THE THINGS.
You’re probably thinking I am that awkward person who comes WAY too late to the party and then all the current party attendees kind of just stare at them and wonder why they even bothered coming, because spiralizing has been super cool for AGES now.
Don’t lie. I can see your starey, judgey-eyes THROUGH THE SCREEN.
But, I am totally agreeing with that super wise person that once said “better late than never.”
Not only is spiralizing all the rage (and you know you wanna be in with the “KEWL KIDS”), it’s also a SUPER EASY way to take your favorite meals, and make them aheckofa lot healthier.
How-EV-er, hear me out for just 10 seconds. My Hub-o-rama took one bite of this baked Zucchini casserole and said “this tastes exactly like broccoli and cheese soup!”
So there. I win our little competition that you didn’t even know we were having. HA.
Now that fact that the Huberskerdo even liked this, means that I know you are going to as well. Because 1. It has kale 2. It has (multiple!) vegetables and 3. it kind of looks like quiche.
He had a traumatic quiche experience as a child (he still won’t go into details about it with me, so I can’t tell you anything more about that) so, when he saw me making this zucchini cheese casserole, he was MUCH less than thrilled.
Until he (cautiously) ate it… and then took ALL the leftovers for lunch for all the evers of his life (read: the next day, because that’s all that was left)
Not only is this healthy zucchini casserole cheesy, low carb (zucchini noodles whatwhat!) and full of superfoody good-fo’-yo’-body yumminess but it’s also protein packed (egg whites AND Greek yogurt? You know it!) AND super, stupid easy to make.
How to make zucchini casserole
- Spiralize your zucchini noodles. Let them sit in a strainer with a little bit of salt. This allows them to release their moisture.
- Press out any excess water (this is key!) and then stir them into your egg/Greek yogurt mixture.
- Add in the rest of the vegetables and cheese and pour into a pan.
- Bake until the eggs feel set, about 45-55 minutes!
See? Like you should probably close your screen, and get your healthy baked CHEESY zucchini casserole on RIGHT NOW.
